Orchard Park, N.Y. (WGR 550) - The Buffalo Bills have signed fifth-year defensive tackle Ed Oliver to a four-year contract extension through the 2027 season, the team announced Monday. ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter was the first to report the signing on Saturday.
Oliver was selected ninth overall in the 2019 NFL Draft out of the University of Houston, and was about to enter the final year of his rookie deal. The 25-year-old was scheduled to make just shy of $10.8 million in 2023, with the exact same amount counting against the salary cap.
The new deal will presumably lower that cap number, but exact details of the contract were not announced.
Listen Live to WGR:
Oliver finished last season with just 2.5 sacks, the lowest of his career, while also missing three games with an ankle injury.
In his four seasons with the Bills, Oliver has accumulated 151 total tackles, 30 tackles for loss, 42 quarterback hits, 14.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in 62 games played.
